DobberHockey Down the Stretch Contest – Week 1

As of next Monday, there will be four weeks left in the NHL regular season. And during those final four weeks, we will be running some contests here at DobberHockey. Each week, there will be a list of players provided with a specific scoring system. The entrant with the most points at the end of each week will receive an autographed 8x10 photo (Ribeiro, Sullivan, Boyes, or Spezza). To reward our loyal DobberHockey members, those with over 1000 posts on the forums will be given a slight advantage. However, if you make a shrewd selection, it won’t matter if your post count is low.


For this first week, the points system will reward assists and penalty minutes. Of the list below, select one player (those with over 1000 posts select two, and the better one will count at the end of the week).


Vaclav Prospal

Matt Stajan

Wojtek Wolski

Peter Mueller

Mason Raymond

TJ Oshie

Mike Fisher

Teemu Selanne

Jamie Benn

Nikolai Kulemin

Josh Bailey

Ryane Clowe

Cory Stillman

Martin Erat

Tomas Fleischmann



Assists are worth two points each, and penalty minutes are worth a point each (so a fight would be five points). For example, a player finishing the week with four assists and nine penalty minutes would have 17 points.


In the event of a tie (which is likely if we receive a lot of entries), the tiebreaker will be plus-minus related. Simply send me the player (**NOT JUST ON THIS LIST, BUT ANY NHL PLAYER**) who you think will finish the week with the lowest/worst plus-minus in the league.


Of the first 20 submissions I received, Shawn Horcoff was on at least 10 of them. Ouch.


Week 1 scoring will run from Monday March 15th to Sunday March 21st.


The cut-off for submissions is midnight EST/9pm PST on Sunday March 14th. Send your pick (or picks, depending on post count) to me ([email protected]). In the subject line, put “DobberHockey Contest Week 1”, and in the body of the email, include your selection (with the tiebreaker) and username on the forum (if applicable).
